Urban Flava. Streetspice. Newcastle 28 Feb To 2 Mar 2013


Newcastle’s most popular Indian Restaurant – Sachins have decided to put a little heat into your winter and are organising a world spice food festival – with a difference.

The event is in aid of Kuly Ral, who unfortunately died earlier in the year from a brain tumour. Geeta Ral was married to Kuly and mother of his three year old daughter. Geeta is also the sister of Neeta Arora from Sachins, hence this charity is something close to both her and Bob’s heart. The charity Brain Tumour UK will be the beneficiary of all funds raised and it is hoped that one day a cure for brain tumours can be found.

Kuly Ral made up one third of super Urban-Bhangra group RDB when his devoted family and Three Records label colleagues discovered that he had a terminal brain tumour. Although Kuly sought to get treatment in America for this, it was not to be, and Kuly passed away on May 22, 2012. Kuly’s brother, Manj remembers him fondly:

Kuly was the most creative person I had ever known. I was privileged and honoured to learn everything I know today from him. He was my mentor as well as my older brother and I will always follow his legacy and keep making him proud of me.

Street Spice @ Life will take place in a huge marquee at the Centre for Life kicking off on Thursday 28th of February continuing on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd March 2013. Hundreds of spicy food experts will gather together to create the North East’s largest Spice Food Festival, with a fusion of different tastes, cultures and experiences – a must for gastronomes everywhere.

The event will be free to enter, easy to access and with hundreds of partners serving up delicious spicy street fare at affordable prices. it’s guaranteed to be on the lips of foodies right across the North East….The event will play host to some of the finest (and even some celebrity) chef’s in the country with everything from Bollywood dancers to authentic food demonstrators from experts in their field. An array of food, entertainment from all cultures and the chance to experience the first Asian street food festival that Newcastle has ever seen.

Sponsored by Metro Radio, Close House and many more – this event is one NOT to be missed.
